Overclocking

Rather than show you three CPU-Zs that all show the same thing, because the Intel Core i9-10900K is so responsive and the build quality of our three ITX motherboards is so high, they all ran at 5.2 GHz across all 10 cores at 1.3V. A staggering achievement on such small PCBs and compressed power stages when compared to their ATX counterparts. Performance is definitely not going to be lacking.

With three motherboards and six results in our graph we've strayed away from our normal highlighting procedure of blue for the stock and green for the overclocked, instead the ASUS Strix is blue, Gigabyte Aorus Ultra is green and the MSI MEG Unify gets to be yellow.
